At the 29th Annual Producers Guild Awards in January, Murphy will be the 2018 recipient of the Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television. It's an award that's a long time coming for the super producer, given his four Emmys, two PGA Awards, and his 2014 Stanley Kramer Award for the Emmy-award winning television adaptation of The Normal Heart. Next year, Murphy will also bring a new wave of content to television with the long-awaited The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and the transgender-centric new show Pose.

Producers Guild Awards Chairs Donald De Line and Amy Pascal made the announcement Tuesday, saying: "Being a prolific producer is itself an achievement, but it takes a truly unique talent like Ryan Murphy to forge a producing career that touches so many different genres--from horror, to comedy, to musicals, to fact-based drama--and infuse them all with such distinctive voice and passion."
